Chews are made from food grade silicone, they are non-toxic and safe.
Here are Some Benefits of Sensory Chew Tools For Kids:
- Meet a need: Oral sensory tools can help diminish the need to chew. This is done by providing the appropriate oral input (proprioception) that a child may be seeking through chewing.
- Improve Focus, Attention & Concentration: This can be seen in classrooms, therapy sessions as well as interacting in community activities. As a result of improved focus and concentration, you see improved motor performance and skills.
- Improve form and mood: Sensory chew tools help a child learn how to self regulate so they feel calm, centred and focused.
- Assists with transitioning and organising: Chewing provides proprioceptive input which is known to be calming and organising to the body. This can create smoother and less anxiety provoking transitions throughout the day.
- Encouraging healthy outlets: By choosing chewing tools, it massively reduces a child chewing on unsafe and inappropriate items. Children are better able to manage sensory overload as a result of getting the appropriate sensory input and therefore they are able to provide a more productive sensory response.
- Decrease social anxiety: using chewlery tools when children feel anxious or overwhelmed during social settings can reduce their anxiety and can prevent sensory overload.
- Improves social skills. Since we know sensory chewing can decrease social anxiety and aid in children feeling more comfortable in their own bodies, we see this translate into children more relaxed in social settings and interactions.
- Provide a Sensory Filter: Sensory chew tools can help filter and organise sensory information. This helps a child better process sensory input and then provide a more appropriate output or response.
- Strengthen Oral Motor and Facial Muscles: Sensory chew tools are beneficial for developing muscles, oral motor exploration and can even help minimise food aversions. By using sensory chew tools, children are exposed to a variety of different textures. Strengthening tongue coordination as well as jaw and lip closure through the use of sensory chew toys can help improve oral coordination of speech, eating and drinking.
